Poland’s richest person, Jan Kulczyk, has donated about $6 million to the Museum of the History of Polish Jews.

The billionaire’s gift is the largest to the museum by an individual donor, according to the Warsaw Business Journal. The $96 million museum is set to open next year.

The money for Kulczyk’s donation will come from his company, Kulczyk Holdings.

“Life is not just a business, not just economics. We must remember what was,” Kulczyk said in a statement, according to the Warsaw Business Journal.

Forbes magazine listed Kulczyk, 62, as the world’s richest Pole, with a net worth of $2.7 billion.
